think mike pence, a guy that spent time in congress, the governor of indiana. i think he's a guy we underrate in terms of his influence. we have seen in places like ohio, florida, wisconsin how governors, particularly republican governs have influence. pence is a conservative who's a believer and i think going to push an agenda that will kind of -- >> i think so, too. that's why i put him on my dozen. perry, you picked two governors. >> jerry brown, really important. first time ever and since 1933 california's a super majority, meaning two thirds of the members of the house and senate are democrats. jerry brown and the democrats do whatever they want. we have one party government in the biggest state in the country and curious what's that mean? >> how does he use it? yep. >> a panacea. nikki haley is struggling. at the same time, she's a big national figure. the republicans are looking for diverse voices and she is a leading one and curious to see what she does going forward. >> all right. stephanie, you picks were -- one was predictable. one to me was unpredictable. >> i picked eli
